Volunteer Your Time

  • The Morris Farm Store: Volunteers are needed to staff regularly scheduled hours in the Farm Store.

  • Publicity for the Morris Farm: Helping to write press releases and use social media to share what we do with our community.

  • Master Gardener Volunteers: Help is always needed with planting, weeding, and harvesting in the Master Gardener Garden on Wednesday mornings, April through October

  • Food security: Roles range from helping with our annual Food Security Forum, to public awareness & publicity about the issue of hunger in our community, to helping to organize a buying club to help folks with SNAP benefits use Farm Fresh Rewards to purchase fresh local vegetables.

  • Event staff: Some examples include the annual plant sale, Tour de Farms, Community Thanksgiving Potluck, Open Mic Nights, Community Contra Dances. Help with set-up & clean- up, press releases, hanging posters around town, making signs, taking photographs, working the grill, cooking meals, washing dishes, etc etc etc.

  • Volunteer coordinator: Work in collaboration with office manager to contact volunteers, assign tasks and manage scheduling. Finding one exceedingly gracious person who would be willing to take the lead here would bolster the operations of the farm greatly.

  • Trail & yurt maintenance: At this time, fixing up our trails is a high priority need!

  • Mowing: This is one that we’d greatly appreciate help with! While we may not need your help with this every week, if we could get a few committed folks who could do this consistently, the mowing should be very manageable.

  • Website updates

  • Teaching a class: Lead a session on a farm- or natural-history- based theme for our “First Mondays” series. Topics might include chickens 101, canning, companion planting, organic pest control, wild edibles/medicinal plant hike, soap-making, mushroom log cultivation, seed saving techniques… or anything you might conjure up!

  • Carpentry & facilities:  Help us build the farm (and keep it from falling to pieces!) Some tasks that need doing are  building compost bins, helping to build & install a spring-fed reservoir for livestock in the back field, ditch work, shoring up the fence in the front of the building, snow shoveling, painting projects galore, light carpentry in various places.
